Liverpool appear to have been handed a major boost in the race to sign French midfielder Yann M'Vila, with the player's own agent having admitted that his client dreams of playing in the Premier League.

23-year-old M'Vila, who currently represents Russian Premier League outfit Rubin Kazan, has played 15 times for Valery Sorokin's side this season and has also won 22 senior international caps for his native France - although he has been serving a ban from international football for an unauthorised night out since 2012.

According to The Metro, Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers is an admirer of the defensive midfielder and the paper also claims there are growing rumours that the Merseyside outfit are ready to make an offer for his services.

Such a pursuit could certainly be worthwhile for Rodgers, with M'Vila's agent doing little to suggest that the player would be adverse to a switch to the top-flight.

"I think many players dream of playing in the Premier League – Yann is no different," Werner badder was quoted by The Metro.

"I will not deny there is interest from many European clubs, including English teams. We will see what happens."

This is certainly not the first time that M'Vila's name has been mentioned in relation to Liverpool.

Back in November, the player sparked somewhat of a transfer rumour frenzy by being present in the away end during Liverpool's thrilling 3-3 draw with fierce rivals Everton at Goodison Park.
